About Me


My name is Nina, I'm a 27 years old (as of 2017) grad student looking to share some experiences with people around the world.

Love to travel and getting the chance to meet new people and learn whats not on the traveling guides about the places I'm going. Also love not spending too much money doing it.

I'm Brazilian, so if you are thinking about visiting the place just chat me up and I'll at the very least give you some tips and suggestions about where to go and, specially, what to eat. This is definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth, and it goes way beyond your usual Rio/Salvador circuit!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To get a different experience while traveling, to meet new people and have some one who knows what the deal is to introduce me to the local cuisine!


I'm a sucker for echo-turism, It's whats I've done the most in my home country. Although I love a good museum and a busy, multicultural city, there's nothing like a good hike and some time spent in the nature! I'm really into jogging, so anyone who can recommend me a nice park where I can run will be greatly appreciated!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music- mostly brazilian music, classic rock and some contemporary crappy pop music.

Movies- Honestly, I'll watch anything. From 1920s silent black and white artsy italian movies, to documentaries, to super hero stuff to romantic comedies.

Books- Truly impossible to decide. Gabriel Garcia Marquez may be my favorite author, and Ana Karenina my favorite book. Really into Elena Ferrante right now.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visit Palestine <3

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach history so you can learn about the world you live in. Share the best of you before you start demanding the best of others.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Brazilian food! :)

Also, I'm a big talker, albeit kind of shy when I first meet people. But don't worry, Im really great at respecting peoples privacy and space as well rs
